Nope. All injuries/illnesses are proven and documented. Now if you'll excuse me, I have an appointment to remove Bertuzzi's spleen for exactly 10 games or 21 days, whichever comes first.
I don't think we'd be messing around with waiving Tootoo if we were planning on scheduling injuries/illnesses unless we're hoping that the league will think that we have plans for when everyone comes back.
It could get interesting if our players continue to fall one by one during the season, especially if some are not well-documented. The league won't question broken bones or the like, but flu-like symptoms could get dicey.
We also need to make sure that the "sick" ones are on board with the Plot and don't let on to the media. <glares at Franzen whilst fondling a scalpel>
